    Get the latest version here.

    Version 2.5.1:
    ———————-
    * Fixed a screen saver bug–it would consume all your CPU time on the PC
    * Updated Linux install Makefile to work in more cases/on more distributions

    Known problems:
    * not all galleon skins in HD cover the screen–use tivo skins
    * still some layout glitches in HD
    * still some HD menu highlights are too big for text

    Since the 9.0 update Galleon no longer works to transfer files onto the now playing list. It starts the transfer but won't finish it. Also, there is a folder issue now. This is true of the newest Galleon release and of the prior one. It seems tivo has screwed us again

    Problems I've found:

    Comments on 2.5.1:

    1. 2.5.1 fixes the 99% CPU usage problem at connection, but it still occurs once the generic screen saver kicks in. I tested this by going into the Galleon menu and just sitting there for 2 minutes. The TV screen dimmed and the PC's cpu jumped to 99%. This only affects the generic screen saver, the music (bouncing image) one worked fine.

    2. When the screen saver kicks in, it re-enables the TiVo's built in timeout functionality so the TiVo will time out to live TV after the screen saver kicks in (on S3 that's about 2 minutes later). Once again this only affects the generic screen saver, the bouncing one didn't time out.

    3. The HD Photos app will never run or appear if Galleon is set to run in Menu mode (ie: shows the Galleon app in the MP&M menu instead of all the individual apps). Checking the code this appears to be because the HDPhotos app isn't coded to run in the Galleon Menu, but if the Galleon menu is configured to load, no other apps will load.

    4. The bouncing image screen saver doesn't start bouncing when it appears until the next song starts playing.

    5. The bouncing images screen saver doesn't move smoothly around the screen. It stutters. about (S2 and S3).

    6. I'm seeing overlay display issues on my S3. These problems don't appear on my S2. I've seen the following:
    • The bouncing screen saver doesn't look exactly right - Can see the box that the TiVo image is in.
    • In the Galleon Photo app slide show, when the photos transitions to a new once by moving diagonally or horizontally off the screen the moving image flashes as it moves and frequently leaves a trail of black borders on the new image. When the image moves vertically or fades in/out, there is no issue. Here's an example of this.
    I tried other TiVo apps that move images around such as SameGame and the games on playteevee.com's HME app and they don't have this problem.


    Feature Request:

    1. In the To Do application, could you add something to the GUI on the TiVo to say which TiVo a specific show is on? Right now it's impossible to tell which TiVo the program is on if there are multiple TiVos.

    Someone please tell me how to get the transcoding on the fly option to work. I've set it up exactly as the docs describe, but for some reason, when I navigate to the directory where I have a divx file, I don't see any files listed and even when I do, if I try to play one, I don't see it begin transcoding, nor does the VLC start up on my pc.

    The Videocasting app in Galleon isn't meant for sending video files (like Divx) back to the TiVo. It was originally meant to pull video podcasts through RSS feeds. I never got it to work either. For now you could use TiVo.Net or pyTiVo in conjunction with Galleon.

    2.5.1

    Well, it works which I never could get 2.5 to do (but I installed into a new, completely empty folder for 2.5.1)

    The music app - can't toggle any of the options. I cannot turn off screen blanker, etc.

    HD Photos - the slide show time display - I find 2 seconds too short and 5 seconds too long (goldilocks, here).

    Internet Images:

    I mentioned before that there is no highlight or "cursor" indication showing which Internet Image will be shown. But I now notice that every other image does not show. Well, what appears to happen is that the image flashes on screen and then I see a gray screen. When I press the back button, the image again flashes before being brought back to the main Internet image tumb screen. I cursor down and bring up the next image - it shows. Back, down to the next image, again the flash of the image and then a gray screen and a back button (see flash) and then the image thumbs again.

    I'm seeing issues since ver. 2.5 with shows saved to my linux PC.

    They all show running time a filesize stats of "0" and have no show details, synopisis and whatever.

    Since 2.5.1 the ToGo screen on the TiVo doesn't respond to manual requests to transfer video to the PC. The shows DO get recorded, but there is no feedback to that effect when selecting "Record to PC."

    Is there any chance the change to list the tags rather than the file names could be made an opiton in "Music"? I really dislike the change. I share my podcast folders to galleon, and most of them have less that useful tags. The filenames are actually much more informative for me. Also browsing tracks is much slower for me since the change.

    It won't move until the current song ends and the next one starts playing.

    Damm I just checked my tivo recording folder and it had 29 videos that I never Transfered. So I guess I have the same issues with Togo automatically transfering shows but all the shows in the directory are 1.5G or Higher so the whole shows was transfered

    Am I the only one who suffers from repeated, specifically and solely Galleon triggered spontaneous Tivo reboots?

    I've not seen this. The only thing similar is when playing a Shoutcast stream, after a few minutes it drops back to Live TV.

    No. You are not alone. I've had it happen while playing music.

    What's the best way to report bugs? Post here, use the tracker on SourceForge, or something else?

    I was just going through the tracker and found that I'm seeing what's described in bug 1474807 where image files remain open for the life of the galleon process.

    I haven't run the photo app in days, but galleon currently has open handles on 700+ image files. Any ideas?
